Comment on PUC Professor: The Noachian Flood was just a local flood? by Mary Anne L..
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am appalled that Professor Kent would call into question the abundant evidence of a worldwide flood that covered all of the earth. He was out of place to demand that Sean Pitman compare the hypothetical models of 100% and 95% water coverage. That’s a red herring argument, with a answer obvious to us all. I also cannot believe he would call himself a Seventh-day Advents and in the same breath tell us our faith does us no more good than beleiving in Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy. We all know that we need nothing more than the word of God to beleive in a global flood. Our faith alone will stand! But fortunately we have abundant evidence to confirm that the flood literally did drown out all the earth. Thank you Shane and Sean for defending our beliefs.
I’m also appalled that none of our biologists at the faithful colleges are coming here to support our faith! Why aren’t we hearing from the biologists at Southern, or at Southwestern? Why aren’t we hearing from the scientists at Geoscience? Why have these people turned their back on the church? Is it true that a biologist at Southwestern believes that animals might have survived outside the ark? I’m shocked at this! If these men cannot come here to show leadership for the church on these issues, as they are PAID to do, then maybe its time to replace them with men who will!
Some of these people are Lee Spencer from Southern, Arthur Chadwick from Southwestern, Walter Veith from Africa, Ariel Roth and Timothy Standish from Geoscience, Leonard Brand from Loma Linda. These men MUST help present the truth about creation. They should not abandon this task to Sean and Shane who are capable but can use their support.

Wait a minute, Sean, why are YOU comparing faith to santa claus? I think Inge Anderson wrote much that made a lot of sense. Maybe for you the Bibles accuracy hinges on creation and flood evidence, but many of us think the Bible holds up well enough without all the science mumbo jumbo. I have no problem believing in a six day creation, original sin, salvation and the atonement regardless of what science has to tell us. I don’t think it all revolves around just this one issue that is still important. I don’t think there is ANY comparison between my faith in the Bible and Santa clause.
